This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Given all the love I've seen for the system since I've been on the internet, I wish I had picked it up back in the day.  :(  The whole Alternity rules set, actually.  I was completely into Shadowrun at the time, though.

That said, I know some people have been working on it.  I'll have to ponder and see if I can remember who it was...

I've seen some things. I'll see if I can find any links.

Some of it has made its way into the various d20 Modern releases. I'd say take a look at the Menace Manual. Oh, and the big setting book that kinda aped Shadowrun...can't remember the title off the top of my head, and the book isn't handy.

4e definitely has an Old School feel. If you disagree, cool. I won't throw any hyperbole out to prove the point.

Ooh! I almost forgot. Dungeon 108 had a D20 minigame for DarkMatter.

Menace Manual helps a lot with this. I find myself lamenting that so many good modern monsters had to be published in a supplement because they were passed over for D&D retreads.

The Menace Manual is a great book. It reminded me of both Delta Green and Dark Conspiracy.
